If it's not too deep: Apply pressure to control bleeding. Apply topical antibiotic and bandiad or dressing. For more severe cuts, get medical attention and have it checked out.

Read below: If this is a cut, not athletes foot fungus, i would put a very thin layer of neosporin ointmen and a bandaid to the area 2 times per day. After the cut heals, put vaseline on the area for a few days to make sure it does not break open. If this is red, swollen or infected, please see your podiatrist.

Depends: On how it fell off. If it was a sudden traumatic loss of nail, apply antibiotic ointment and a dressing, see podiatrist. If nailslowly separated from nail bed over a prolonged period of time, the nail bed probable toughened up and dried out. If this is case, keep clean and avoid excessive shoe pressure by avoiding tight shoes.
